    We reviewed the Spanish artist, Dionisio González, last year for his show also at Galerie Richard. Last time it was the Favelas in Brazil. Now this is the Halong Series and the infamous Vietnamese locale becomes his canvas for the surrealist photographs he is known for.  AF came to a private viewing at the gallery and we were treated to once again an urban architecture dream set in a protected environment. The houseboats were pimped out to create the dreamlike floating structures and sort of tableaux that gets your juices going. Perhaps a visit to see this meticulously manipulated photos can lift you out of the winter doldrums and look towards paradise. It might be surreal but it is still paradise. As they say, love is better the second time around. To this we say, j’adore the pictures galore!
